How do a make changes in a Linked package?

I have made a link to a package in another project and that worked
fine. Then I would like to add a patch and here I hit some problems. I
uploaded the path with the webclient and clicked the box "Add as patch
to SPEC file" but reading the build log I see nothing about it
applying the patch.
Am I missing something?

Have you looked at another package which does (successfully) change

I can suggest the package exim-mysql in the server:mail project, where
adding a patch definitely works.


As there is a check box in the webclient I thought that would work but
it didn't. So looked around and saw that I had to edit the _link file
myself. I've tried that but it still don't work (or I'm doing it the
wrong way).

This is my _link file:
<link project='home:MRichards' package='evolution-scalix'>
<apply name="openSUSE-evo2.12.patch" />

The patch file is in the package directory in my project. Not sure
what to add to the <topadd></topadd> . Searched for it on the openSUSE
wiki and found nothing. So I guessed. My patch patches the configure
file will this work?
